Scott faces more than 120 unlawful homicide, assault and building liability lawsuits as a result of the tragedy.
A Twitter user expressed triggering emotions after watching the documentary.
“I saw the Astroworld documentary that Hulu put out and … I literally cried throughout the whole thing, it really breaks my heart.”
The 50-minute special was actually produced by ABC’s Houston subsidiary KTRK.
Hulu released a statement letting viewers know that the platform hosted, but not produced, the documentary “Astroworld: Concert From Hell”.
“This was a local investigative news special on ABC13 / KTRK-TV in Houston that originally aired on November 20th. This wasn’t Hulu documentation and has since been removed to avoid confusion. “
The documentary can still be seen on the KTRK website.
